Oleh Shcherbatenko emphasized that IT-Enterprise is ready to give universities a list of tasks, to teach students and to enable young people to use its solutions in real enterprises.
Kyrylo Kostanetskyi, SmartEAM Project Manager, shared his experience in implementing technology 4.0 for predictive equipment maintenance.
Full production automation, where all processes are managed online, taking into account the variability of external factors, is an imperative of our time. Cyber-physical systems are capable of being integrated into one network, self-adjusting and self-learning, making virtual copies of objects, controlling physical processes and making decentralized decisions. This helps to optimize production costs, execute orders on time and become more customer-oriented, which is a key to gaining a competitive edge in the Industry 4.0 era.
Phoenix Contract and IT-Enterprise became general partners of the event.
